Minecraft 1.9 Pre-Release 5 | Crazy Camera Antics and Optimized FPS Await!

Minecraft 1.9 Pre Release 5 is the last release before the final release comes out on the 18th of November, 2011. With the feature freeze in full effect, there’s not much ‘new’ in Minecraft 1.9 Pre Release 5. What there are is a host of little bug fixes, minor changes and most importantly FPS optimization.
